I replaced the Thermostats and upper radiator hose but did not do a flush. The car temperature raises above half after a while with the ac on. My questions are, where is the drain plug for the radiator? And what could be the problem of it overheating

Hi unknown18,

After the repairs carried out, you need to bleed the cooling system. Since you have already run the vehicle, remove the radiator cap when engine is cold. Top up coolant and run engine with radiator cap off. Top up coolant if required and when coolant level stabilises, close the radiator and retest.

The radiator drain plug is on either the left or right inner side of lower radiator housing.
